Special Medal Awards 

The following special medal awards were made by the 
Trustees in 1934 : 

The George Kobert White Medal of Honor, given for the 
advancement of horticulture in its broadest sense. Awarded to 
Captain F. Kingdon Ward, British plant hunter and explorer, 
who has penetrated to the distant parts of China and other 
countries, who has introduced many new plants and who has 
written several notable books. 

The Thomas Roland Medal, given for skill in horticulture. 

Captain F. Kingdon Ward 

Awarded to William Kleinheinz of Elkins Park, Pa., super- 
intendent for Mr. Joseph Widener. Mr. Kleinheinz is an expert 
gardener and the exhibit of acacias from the Widener green- 
houses set up by him is always one of the principal features at 
the Spring flower show in Philadelphia. 

The Jackson Dawson Memorial Medal, designed to encourage 



the science and practice of the hybridization and propagation 
of hardy woody plants. Awarded to Mr. H. Harold Hume of 
Gainesville, Fla., who has done much important work in the 
hybridization and propagation of azaleas and citrous fruits and 
who has written extensively about these plants. 

Professor Oakes Ames was chairman of the committee recom- 
mending these awards, the other members of the committee 
being Samuel J. Goddard, Harlan P. Kelsey, William Ellery, 
and Harold S. Ross. 

Captain F. Kingdon Ward 

It is not possible to state how many plants have been intro- 
duced by Captain F. Kingdon Ward, who was awarded the 
George Robert White Medal of Honor, but the number is very 
large. His discoveries of rhododendrons and primulas are espe- 
cially noteworthy. For his plant hunting explorations he re- 
ceived the highest award of the Royal Horticultural Society, 
the Victoria Medal of Honor in Horticulture, in 1932. In 
addition, the Royal Geographical Society awarded him their 
Founders' Medal in 1930 for his geographical explorations 
and his work on botanical distribution in southwest China and 
southeast Tibet. 

Captain Ward has explored vast expanses of practically un- 
traveled country. The horticultural world has learned much 
of his experiences through his many publications, magazine 
articles and lectures. Some of his important books are "From 
China to Hkamti Long," "Plant Hunting in the Wilds," "Plant 
Hunting on the Edge of the World," "Rhododendrons for 
Everyone," and the "Romance of Plant Hunting."

Awards to Estates and Gardens 

At a meeting of the Trustees held October 22, 1934, it was 
voted to make the following awards for estates and gardens : 

The H. H. Hunnewell Gold Medal to Mr. Grenville Lindall Win- 
throp for his estate in Lenox. This estate was given a silver medal in 
1914 and has been kept at a high standard. It is particularly notable 
for its many fine trees and its broad lawns. It has no flower gardens or 
borders but has large plantings of shrubs, various architectural fea- 
tures and a large rock garden which is planted exclusively with shrubby 

A gold medal to Mrs. Galen L. Stone for her estate in Marion. This 
estate, which borders the ocean, has large, well kept greenhouses sur- 
rounded by gardens given over mostly to annuals but laid out on a 
generous scale and unusually well planned. The estate has many fine 
trees and remarkably well kept spruce hedges. 

A gold medal to Mr. Jere A. Downs for his rose garden in Win- 
chester. This garden, which was designed by John B. Wills, is one of 
the notable rose gardens in New England as regards size, its general 
arrangement and the quality of the plants it contains. 

A silver medal to Mrs. Francis Boardman Crowninshield for her 
rose garden in Marblehead. This garden which has been established 
for a long time has several unique features and is looked down upon 
by several fine old statues. It is well kept and has roses in wide variety 
although largely the old kinds. 

A silver medal to Mrs. Pierpont L. Stackpole for her garden in 
Manchester. This garden has been developed very successfully in a 
semi-formal manner on a high cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. 

A blue ribbon certificate to Mr. and Mrs. George B. Baker for a 
charming little garden at Chestnut Hill. 

A blue ribbon certificate to Mrs. Gaspar G. Bacon for her garden 
in Jamaica Plain. 

A blue ribbon certificate to Dr. and Mrs. Amos I. Hadley for a 
garden in Wayland surrounded by a serpentine wall. 

A blue ribbon certificate to Mrs. Stephen Van Renssaeler Crosby for 
a remarkable hornbeam hedge on her estate in Manchester. 

A blue ribbon certificate to Mrs. Charles Sumner Bird, Jr., for her 
driveway in Ipswich lined with magnificent trees planted by Mrs. 
Bird's father, Mr. Randolph Morgan Appleton. 

These awards were made on recommendation of a committee 
composed of Mrs. Bayard Thayer, chairman, Mrs. Albert C. 
Burrage, Jr., Joseph E. Chandler, Mrs. S. V. R. Crosby, Mrs. 
F. B. Crowninshield, William C. Endicott, and Mrs. Homer

Trade Catalogues 

A List of Those in the Library of the Massachusetts 
Horticultural Society 

Since the 1880's the Library of the Massachusetts Horticul- 
tural Society has made a systematic collection of trade cata- 
logues. The Society's general interests limit the collection to 
dealers in fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants (both 
woody and herbaceous) that will grow in this climate. There 
are now 19,431 items from 2,327 firms. Thirty-one countries 
are represented. Since the centers of horticultural activity have 
for many years been in Belgium, the British Isles, France, 
Germany, Holland, and the United States, these countries make 
up the bulk of the sets. 

The chronological distribution of the file is as follows: 

Sets with earliest item before 1800 

" " " " 1800—1849 

" 1850—1899 

" " " 1900—1928 






; 5 










719 1,608 2,327 

The file has a triple appeal, as a collectors' collection, a stu- 
dents' collection, and a buyers' collection. As a collectors' col- 
lection, it naturally focuses interest upon rarities such as the 
five eighteenth century items. The one American in the group 
is only a reproduction, evidently of an advertisement in a 
paper. It is dated "Richmond, January 24, 1793" and states 
that "MINTON COLLINS most respectfully informs the ladies 
and gentlemen of Virginia, that he has just received . . . from 
London, a fresh assortment of the following SEEDS & 
FLOWER ROOTS, which he is now selling for ready money, 
at his seed and flower store (ONLY) . . ." There follows a 
three-column list of seeds and roots of grasses, vegetables and 
flowers by name "& 100 other sorts too tedious to mention." 

Of the European catalogues, the most interesting, as well as 
the oldest, is Robert Edmeades' "The gentleman and lady's 
gardener; containing the modern method of cultivating the 
kitchen and flower-garden, with a general catalogue of seeds, 
plants, and roots, 1776." As the title suggests, it is far more 



than a tradesman's list. In fact, of its 136 pages, a full two- 
thirds are given to cultural directions. Aside from its age, this 
book is in itself a curiosity, for it gives the name of each plant 
according to the Linmean system. Since the Linnaean botany 
had been adopted in England only sixteen years earlier, Ed- 
meades was evidently a progressive person, with a patronage 
drawn from the botanically informed. It would be interesting 
to know how near this catalogue comes to being the first of its 

As a students' collection the file provides source material in 
the history of plant introduction, and has proved its value many 
times in the use made of it by authors and research workers. 
We regard as one of our most important services our ability to 
provide an original description, a date of introduction, or a 
series of catalogues covering an interesting period in the career 
of a plant or a nursery. 

As a buyers' collection, the catalogues receive almost con- 
stant use by members of the Society and by the Secretary. 
When publishing in Horticulture articles on new plants, it is 
important to know whether they are available in the market, 
for we are often asked where all sorts of things may be bought. 
The ethical problem of advertising presents no difficulty, for 
we make it a practice in answering such queries to give a list 
of names, rather than a single dealer. 

The classification of the catalogues is very simple. The cur- 
rent year's issues are kept on open shelves in the reading room, 
arranged alphabetically by the name of the dealer or nursery, 
and in two groups, American and foreign. As a key, we depend 
on Manning's "Plant Buyers Index," supplementing it by a 
card file of such items as (when called for) we do not find in 
Manning. When the new issues arrive, the old ones go to the 
pamphlet boxes in the permanent file. Here the sets are ar- 
ranged alphabetically by countries. Current and back numbers 
alike are strictly reference material.

Graphs Show Library's Growth 

The question is sometimes asked "Is the Library used very 
much ?" It is now in its twelfth year as an active loan collection, 
and, as the accompanying charts show, has grown far beyond 
the experimental stage and has, indeed, established itself among 
the major activities of the Society. 

Seasonal fluctuations, after the first tentative years, have 
fallen consistently into one pattern. G-ardeners apparently read 
in the indoor season, so that when planting time arrives many 
visitors disappear and the mails grow lighter. The revival be-

gins in September or October, when problems of Fall work 
and next year's bulbs come to the front, and the garden club 
season opens. 

The annual totals, which mount so fast on the final chart, 




show the surprising gain of 600 per cent between 1924 and 
1934. Twice we had slight decreases. Those who follow the 
flower shows, however, will recognize 1929 and 1931 as our two 
first seasons at Mechanics Building. In each of those years the

the use of the Library a set-back from which it took some months

keynote of so many activities, libraries of all kinds offer the

paradox of a boom. Economic pressure, more leisure, the need 
either to learn or to escape — various impulses have set more 
people than ever before to reading. There seems to be some 
indication that the pace of this activity is growing slower, as it 
must eventually. Barring actual catastrophe, it should never 
lose entirely the momentum it has acquired. Many readers have 
discovered the Library, and the Library has found new open- 
ings for usefulness.

Benevolent Fraternity Fruit 
and Flower Mission 

The Benevolent Fraternity Fruit and Flower Mission is very 
grateful to the Trustees of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society for their continued cooperation, which has enabled the 
mission to relieve some of the tension under which people have 
been living the past year. 

The extreme Winter of 1934 took its toll of gardens, many 
of which had already shown the effects of the depression. Then 
came the dry Summer and in some of the towns the use of the 
hose was prohibited. In spite of these adverse conditions the 
Fruit and Flower Mission received during its hamper season 
at the four centers a higher total of hampers, baskets, boxes, 
etc., than at any time in its history — 641 from 30 towns. 

We missed the generous donations of vegetables and fruits 
of former years — and the need for these is always acute — but 
the flowers cheered many discouraged people. 

When the train service from Groton was discontinued our 
good friends of the Boston and Maine Railroad arranged to 
have the hamper sent by bus to Nashua, N. H., and placed on 
the train from that point, resulting in a 100 per cent record 
for this well-filled hamper. 

Three hundred and twenty-four baskets filled with jelly, 
oranges, candy, tea balls, soup and other "goodies" carried 
Thanksgiving and Christmas joy to lonely and sick shut-ins 
and "white collar" recipients. 

A quantity of seeds, bulbs and plants were distributed for 
planting in the 300 back yard gardens. 

The wards of four hospitals and a convalescent home were 
brightened by the visits of our hospital unit with their gay 
baskets of flowers. 

We especially appreciate the kindness of the Massachusetts 
Horticultural Society in giving us the use of the lecture hall 
for a benefit lecture on Africa, given by Dr. and Mrs. Carl L. 
Watson. The friendly interest of Mr. Farrington means much 
to our work. 

Contributions — which may be left on any week day morning 
throughout the year in our basement room at Horticultural 
Hall — help greatly to build up the morale of individuals fac- 
ing the insecurity of our times. 

Emily I. Elliott, Executive Secretary. 















Annual Meeting, 1935 

The annual meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society was held at 3 p.m. on Monday, May 6, being preceded 
by a lecture by the Secretary, in which he reviewed the activities 
of the previous year, illustrating his talk with lantern slides. 

In the absence of the President, Mr. Edwin S. Webster, who 
was traveling in the West, the meeting was presided over by 
Professor Oakes Ames, Vice-President. Professor Ames an- 
nounced that Mr. Paul Frese and Miss Phyllis Allen had been 
appointed tellers. 

The Secretary read the call for the meeting and the minutes 
of the previous meeting. He then read the annual address of 
the President in Mr. Webster's absence. This was followed by 
the reports of the Secretary, the Treasurer and the chairmen 
of the various committees, all of which are appended. 

The President's Address 

I am writing my brief address to the members of the Massa- 
chusetts Horticultural Society with the knowledge that I shall 
be away when the meeting is held and that the necessity of 
reading it will devolve upon the Secretary. I wish to convey to 
the members my feeling of regret that I can not be present and 
to say to them that the prosperity and development of the 
Society in all its various activities is something very close to 
my heart. 

The record of the Society throughout its long history and in 
more recent years is one of which we may well be proud. The 
Society has made steady progress throughout the years of 
the depression. The fact seems rather surprising, inasmuch as 
most societies have been forced to admit the loss of member- 
ship. The Massachusetts Horticultural Society now has a total 
membership of 8,217. It gives a total increase of 607. The 
present membership is by far the largest in the history of the 
Society and, of course, no other similar organization in the 
country has a membership even half as large. The Secretary 
tells me that he feels that the membership can be increased to 
10,000, which would be as large a membership as can be taken 
care of without a somewhat decided increase in expense. The 
number of life members, unfortunately, has fallen off slightly 
and the President again urges that annual members become 
life members when they find that they can conveniently do so. 



The need of increasing the life membership list must be 

The President was obliged to report last year that the in- 
come of the Society had fallen off to such an extent that the 
Treasurer's book showed a deficit. I am glad to say that the 
situation for 1934 was somewhat improved, although the year 
was ended with a loss of about $650, partly because of the 
failure of the Autumn show to make the financial success 
anticipated. The officers of the Society have met the situation 
fairly and have agreed upon methods of economy which should 
keep the budget balanced this year. The heads of committees 
and departments were called together by the Committee on 
Finance and instructed to reduce expenditures where this 
could be done without interfering with the necessary work of 
the Society. It is probable that the plan of holding a large 
Autumn flower show will be done away with at least for the 
present, but that a show will be substituted at much less ex- 
pense which will give the public an opportunity to view such 
plants as they can grow in their gardens. 

The Society has been fortunate in its associations with the 
garden clubs and similar organizations, and the President 
takes this opportunity to express his appreciation of the 
assistance given the Society by the officers of the Garden Club 
Federation of Massachusetts and for continued cooperation on 
the part of the New England Gladiolus Society, the New 
England Dahlia Society and other organizations for the im- 
provement of horticulture. "We are glad to extend the facilities 
of this building to organizations of this kind. I can not make 
it too plain that the Society exists for the sole purpose of 
making itself useful to all persons engaged in horticulture as 
a vocation or as an avocation. The garden clubs have brought 
many visitors to the library in search of information and have 
added to our membership in no small measure. It would be 
difficult to overestimate their influence. 

For a few months last Summer the curve on the library 
chart indicating the demand for books went down. I am glad 
to say that it has gone up again and that the demand for books 
is now heavy — something which indicates a healthy interest in 
gardening matters. The Society is extremely proud of its 
Library and this part is justified because it can be matched by 
few institutions anywhere in the world. Important additions

are being made every year under the direction of the chairman 
of the Library Committee, Mr. Kidder, and the Librarian, 
Miss Manks, frequently makes an exhibit of valuable and 
interesting books in cases in the library. I hope that members 
of the Society will make an effort to see some of these exhibits. 
You will be interested to know that many of the books in the 
library are so valuable and such excellent examples of the 
book maker's art that the master printers of the city occa- 
sionally ask for the privilege of reading in our library in 
order to discuss these books and the way in which they are 

Our relations with the other horticultural societies, particu- 
larly in New York, Pennsylvania, Worcester, the North Shore 
and Cape Cod, have continued most cordial. "We are happy to 
have the cooperation of the North Shore Horticultural Society 
and the Cape Cod Horticultural Society in flower shows. The 
Society is in touch, through its Secretary, with horticultural 
organizations in many parts of the country and has been 
instrumental in helping some of them to increase and broaden 
their activities. 

The President wishes at this time to express his appreciation 
of the cooperation and assistance given him throughout the 
past year by the other officers and the employees of the Society 
and by the various committees, some of which have given much 
time and effort in the Society's interests. 

Edwin S. Webster, President. 

Report of the Secretary 

As the President has stated in his report, the Society now 
has the largest membership in its history and seems likely to 
have 8,500 by the end of the year. The constant growth of the 
Society has brought about a large increase in its activities and 
greater demands upon its resources. The increase in member- 
ship fees, together with a reasonable profit from the Spring 
show has enabled the continuance of these activities in spite of 
the fact that there has been a marked shrinkage in receipts 
from investments. 

There is every reason to believe that the work of the Society 
will continue to expand. When the books were closed at the 
end of April, it was found that that month had brought in 


$2,644 in membership fees. This is the largest amount ever 
received in one month from this source in the Society's history. 
The month which came nearest was that of April in 1932 when 
a total of $2,374 was received. 

The Society has necessarily become involved in business 
operations to a considerable extent although its aims and pur- 
poses continue to be educational and philanthropical. The 
turnover is perhaps much larger than the average member 
realizes. In April the Society paid out $52,000. Of course, 
April is not a typical month because it is in that month that 
most of the bills contracted at the Spring flower show — and 
this includes about $24,000 in prizes — are paid. A more de- 
tailed record of the receipts and expenditures will be found in 
the Treasurer's report, a digest of which will be read here and 
which will appear in full in the year book to be issued in a 
few weeks. 

The Secretary may say, incidentally, that this year book 
deserves the attention of all members of the Society. It con- 
tains a large amount of information to be obtained from no 
other source and is designed to provide a complete history of 
the Society's operations from year to year. An effort is made 
to get into the year books all kinds of information which may 
be of value to posterity or to any one who may in the distant 
future write another history of the Society or prepare a sequel 
to the Society's present excellent history, which was brought 
up to the centennial year. This history, by the way, was 
originally published at three dollars, but the Trustees last year 
voted to dispose of a limited number of copies at one dollar 
each. Any member of the Society or any person interested in 
the Society's work may purchase a copy of the Society's history 
substantially bound and attractively illustrated at the Secre- 
tary's office at any time for one dollar. 

The fact that the Society had ended two financial years with 
a deficit prompted the Finance Committee and the Executive 
Committee to hold a joint meeting last Winter and to canvass 
the entire situation. It became obvious to these committees that 
the falling off in revenue from investments and from rentals 
and the increase in various expenses owing to the enlarged 
membership made measures of economy imperative. Accord- 
ingly, a budget was prepared for 1935 and is now in effect.

Under this budget each department is required to reduce its 
expenditures wherever possible and to exercise rigid economy. 
This applies in part to the Summer and Fall shows although 
ample amounts have been appropriated to make these shows 
worth while. The early June show, however, was dropped for 
1935, by vote of the Exhibition Committee. In view of these 
economies and the vote of the committee not to undertake a 
pretentious Autumn show with an admission fee and in view 
of the increased cost of living, it was deemed possible to restore 
the salary cuts which had been in effect. 

The Spring flower show has come to be depended upon as a 
necessary source of revenue. Without a substantial profit 
from this show, the Society would find it difficult to stage its 
free shows throughout the Summer and Autumn months. The 
report of the chairman of the Committee on Exhibitions will 
give you some of the important facts relating to the different 

The Committee on Gardens, with Mrs. Bayard Thayer as 
chairman, visited many gardens last year and in its report on 
October 5 recommended the award of the H. H. Hunnewell 
Medal to Mr. Grenville Lindall Winthrop for his estate in 
Lenox. The committee also recommended the Society's gold 
medals for award to the estate of Mrs. Galen L. Stone in 
Marion and to the rose garden of Mr. Jere A. Downs in Win- 
chester. These awards were made by vote of the trustees, as 
were the following: a silver medal to Mrs. Francis Boardman 
Crowninshield for her rose garden in Marblehead and a silver 
medal to Mrs. Pierpont L. Stackpole for her garden in Man- 
chester; a blue ribbon certificate to Mr. and Mrs. George B. 
Baker for their garden at Chestnut Hill ; a blue ribbon certifi- 
cate to Mrs. Gaspar G. Bacon for her flower pot garden in 
Jamaica Plain ; a blue ribbon certificate to Dr. and Mrs. Amos 
Hadley for their garden in Wayland ; a blue ribbon certificate 
to Mrs. Stephen Van Renssaeler Crosby for a remarkable horn- 
beam hedge on her estate at Manchester ; and. a blue ribbon 
certificate to Mrs. Charles Sumner Bird, Jr., for her driveway 
in Ipswich. The Hunnewell medal awarded to Mr. Winthrop 
was a new medal cast last year from a design made by John 
Paramino from the H. H. Hunnewell Fund, which has been in 
existence for many years. The first medal struck was sent to 


the Hunnewell family. Mr. Winthrop received the second 

At the same meeting, the Committee on Special Medals, 
with Professor Oakes Ames as chairman, recommended the 
award of the George Robert White Medal of Honor to Captain 
F. Kingdon Ward, British plant collector and explorer ; the 
award of the Thomas Roland Medal to William Kleinheinz of 
Elkins Park, Pa., superintendent for Mr. Joseph Widener ; 
and the award of the Jackson Dawson Medal to Mr. H. Harold 
Hume of Gainesville, Fla. The recommendations were adopted 
and the awards made. 

Later in the year the Albert C. Burr age Gold Vase, costing 
$1,000 and offered each year for the most outstanding exhibit 
at any of the Society's exhibitions in the course of that year, 
was awarded to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for its 
exhibit at the Autumn show. 

At the May meeting last year, the Committee on Exhibitions 
was augmented by the addition of Mrs. Roger S. Warner, 
William Ellery and Harold Hill Blossom. At that time also 
Mr. Ellery was made chairman of the Committee on Prizes. 
No other important changes in the membership of committees 
or of the board were made in the course of the year. 

Mr. Nehrling continued his excellent work as Exhibition 
Manager, and Mr. James Geehan was given full charge of the 
advertising department of Horticulture, as will be seen by the 
report of the Committee on Lectures and Publications. 

The garden clubs have held several meetings and conferences 
in the hall in the past year, and the courtesies of the hall have 
been extended to many other organizations of a horticultural 

The Boston Mycological Club has continued to hold exhibi- 
tions each Monday throughout the season, but has suffered the 
loss of one of its oldest and most active members, Mrs. Eliza 

Because of a new appraisement of the building and its con- 
tents and a consequent reduction in rates, the amount of in- 
surance premiums due each year has been reduced by several 
hundred dollars. These insurance premiums are an important 
item of expense and amount to about $3,000 each year. 

The Society has continued to work closely with other organi- 

Cymbidium Beatrice, exhibited by J ere A. Downs at the Spring 
flower show and awarded the gold medal of The Pennsylvania 
Horticultural Society as having the best culture of any exhibit 

in the show 


zations in the cleaning up and development of backyards in 
the adjoining colored section. Mrs. Robert G. Stone, wife of 
one of the Trustees, again gave $75 for the award of prizes to 
garden contest winners. The Secretary awarded these prizes at 
a public meeting in one of the schoolhouses. 

The University Extension Division of the State Department 
of Education held a course in the hall in cooperation with this 
Society and had an average attendance of about 60 and was in 
charge of Mr. Robert Sturtevant. 

The receipts for rentals have continued to fall off in spite 
of every effort to obtain new rentals. In 1934 they were only 
$3,039.55 as against $6,912.90. The principal loss is found in 
the fact that the food fair, for many years a fixture in this 
hall has been merged with a more general show at Mechanics 

The Society has undertaken to find employment for private 
gardeners who have lost their positions because of poor busi- 
ness conditions and their advertisements have been placed 
without charge in Horticulture. Several men have been placed. 
Indeed the demand for gardeners seems to have been larger 
than for several years, although mostly for men to take charge 
of small places at lower salaries than once prevailed. 

The Society has received a number of gifts during the year, 
among them two letters of special interest. These letters were 
written by Edward S. Rand, Jr., who was recording secretary 
about 75 years ago, to Jackson Dawson, who later became 
famous as superintendent of the Arnold Arboretum. One of 
them was written to Mr. Dawson while he was in the army, 
but the other has to do with the discovery of Scotch heather 
found by young Dawson in Tewksbury and reported by him 
to the Society. Members who have read the history of the 
Society will remember that Dawson was suspected of trying 
to perpetrate a hoax and narrowly escaped a reprimand, al- 
though later he demonstrated the fact that heather in abun- 
dance was actually growing at the spot indicated by him. 

The Secretary desires to express warm appreciation of the 
support given him by the officers and members throughout 
the year. 

Edward I. Farrington, Secretary.

Report of the Library Committee 

The theme of this report is service to patrons, in lending 
books and in finding information. It is a report of both accom- 
plishment and need. 

During 1934 our Library loaned 5,513 volumes, only a slight 
gain over the year before. The drop in rate does not disturb 
your committee, however, for libraries of all kinds, stimulated 
of late by the depression, have felt the same reaction. To 
counteract it in our own case, there was enthusiasm over the 
courses given by the National Association of Gardeners and 
by our own Society. The Library Committee were glad to 
cooperate with the Committee on Lectures and Publications 
and with the instructors by buying whatever books were 
needed for the courses. 

The most important fact about the Library is not that it 
buys or lends a certain number of volumes. One should think 
of it first as a reservoir of information and pleasure. A reader 
does not borrow any book he picks up ; he chooses what will 
solve his definite problem, or broaden his knowledge, or give 
him enjoyment. One reader wants to make a thorough study 
of aquilegia, the literature of which is much scattered. Another 
asks for the life and portrait of Captain Kingdon Ward. A 
landscape architect asks for authentic material on the design 
and construction of colonial garden houses, for a restoration 
project. The buying of books to meet such varied needs is one 
of the most important problems of the committee. 

This year the Library has acquired two books of unusual 
rarity and importance. Andrew Mollet's "The Garden of 
Pleasure . . ." was published in London in 1670. Ours is the 
only copy in this country, so far as we know. Its author was 
brought from France into England to introduce the new 
French "parterres de broderie" which his father was laying 
out so magnificently for Louis XIII, and the book is full of 
similar elaborate designs. The second is a copy of the 1599 
edition of Gerard's list of the plants grown in his garden at 
Holborn. Gerard was an extensive collector, and had over a 
thousand varieties, many of them novelties imported from 
Europe and America. From it we get at first hand an insight 
into the resources of the best gardens of the seventeenth 

From time to time through the year, exhibits of our books 


are on display. As this report appears, there is a group of 
seventeenth century English gardening books, the contempo- 
raries of Gerard's list, and of other books that Gerard may 
well have used. 

There are now 23,383 bound volumes in the Library. Five 
hundred and eighty-seven of them were added during the past 
year by purchase, gift, or binding. It is impossible to enu- 
merate gifts in this report, but a full list of them will be 
printed in the Year Book. To all the donors the committee 
make grateful acknowledgment. 

Last Spring for the first time an inventory was taken. The 
shelf list used as a basis was made at intervals between 1928 
and 1932, so that it seems certain that some of the 75 missing 
volumes disappeared during that period. We are happy to 
report that 25 have already been found, and others will prob- 
ably come to light. We are taking such steps as seem to be 
called for in recovering them. 

During the past few years, economy has been a practice 
familiar to us all ; in the Library it has reduced the staff and 
slowed down the work. The temporary abandonment of work 
on the magazine index has been a distinct handicap. 

Given a certain space and a certain income, we can not buy 
indiscriminately. There is in the air a tendency for "special 
libraries" to get together. From this movement we may hope 
for an agreement amongst libraries as to which shall try to 
acquire which lines of literature. 

This is not so simple as it may sound. There are, of course, 
many reference books which are important for all libraries. 
Standard works, such as Gerard, Parkinson, Linnseus, Gray, 
are books to which every one should have access. Many a book 
is less important in its entirety yet has chapters given to 
gardening, exploration, architecture, medicine, botany, or 
other subjects. The problem is to know to which library these 
books should go — if inexpensive and well-balanced, to every 
library ; but if rare and strong on one subject only, then to the 
library specializing on that topic. 

Let us suppose such a happy solution of our difficulties for 
meeting competition and suppose, too, that we have agreed to 
a system of interlibrary loans ; are our troubles over ? No, for 
we need a catalogue which will tell us which library has a cer- 








tain book without having to refer to the special catalogue of 
each individual library. 

Utopian as these suggestions may sound, they did not origi- 
nate with the present writer. They are based on trends, and 
partly on accomplishments of the age. We must realize that to 
develop along these lines money is needed and time and study. 

Nathaniel T. Kidder, Chairman. 

Report of the Committee on Lectures and Publications 

It is gratifying to report that Horticulture has increased in 
circulation and in advertising patronage as well as in size the 
past year. At the same time, the fact must be admitted that 
conditions in the publishing field are far from being as satis- 
factory as we might wish. This fact is shown in the reluctance 
of advertisers to make contracts and in the difficulties expe- 
rienced in making collections. 

In the course of 1934, Walter Adams Johnson of New York 
closed up all of his advertising contracts and ceased to have 
any connection with the paper. All of the advertising work is 
now conducted from this office under the direction of James 
Geehan, advertising manager. This has proved to be a wise 
step. It has resulted in a marked increase in the volume of 
advertising obtained and a distinct improvement in the char- 
acter of the copy used. Losses have been greatly reduced as a 
result of this system and Mr. Geehan has been able to make 
collections on a large number of accounts which we were al- 
most ready to charge off as worthless. 

The circulation at the beginning of 1934 was 22,123. At the 
present time it is approximately 25,000. Part of the increase 
is due, of course, to the increase in the membership of this 
Society and the Pennsylvania society, the latter organization 
having put on about 300 new members for the present year. 

Last year's report showed a serious falling off in advertising 
receipts. This situation, fortunately, has been reversed, the 
receipts for 1934 amounting to $19,075.15 as against about 
$17,000 the year before. This amount, however, is still $2,000 
below the receipts of 1932 and not much more than half those 
of 1929 when business was booming. 

The profit account of Horticulture suffers from the fact that 
all copies of the magazine delivered to members of the Society 


or to subscribers within the postal district must carry stamps 
instead of being sent by the pound rate. This means that it 
costs more to send a copy of Horticulture to Jamaica Plain or 
Chestnut Hill than it does to Kalamazoo or Los Angeles. This 
is one of the curious features of the postal law and one which 
various publishers have got around by having their printing 
done in plants in small towns. The post office has now decreed 
that no publication shall be allowed to adopt such a plan in 
the future. 

Horticulture has continued to publish without charge the 
advertisements of private gardeners wishing positions. For 
several years past, the number of such advertisements has been 
large and this free publicity has naturally increased the ex- 
pense of the publication somewhat. Nevertheless, the members 
of the committee feel that the Society has been doing an excel- 
lent piece of work in this way. 

In 1933, the experiment was made of issuing a supplement 
to be known as Garden Club News. This experiment was made 
after consultation with the officers of the garden club federa- 
tion, who were enthusiastic over the plan. Later a similar 
supplement was started for the benefit of the Garden Club 
Federation of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, neither supple- 
ment received the support expected, either in the way of sub- 
scriptions or of advertising. The experiment was set down as 
a failure, therefore, and the Pennsylvania supplement was 
dropped last year. Garden Club News was carried on locally 
until this Spring. Then it was discontinued, but the supple- 
ment was kept on as a local feature under the title Gardening 
in New England. The outlook for this supplement, at the 
moment, appears to be good. The advertising rates are lower 
than for Horticulture and it serves as a medium through 
which advertisers confining themselves to New England busi- 
ness can put their products before New England readers. The 
supplement serves a useful purpose, too, in providing a means 
for publishing material which is of interest to the readers of 
this section but not of sufficient importance to be published 
in Horticulture, which has a world-wide circulation. 

At the time of the Spring flower show this year, an eight- 
page supplement containing the complete program of the show 
was sent to all subscribers in New England. Horticulture, con- 
taining the supplement and with a new cover, was sold at the 








CO Cj 







co **8 







show to the number of about 15,000 and took the place of a 
program formerly distributed free. This experiment was a 
decided success from both the standpoint of the show and the 
paper itself. 

During the year, four bulletins, "Herbs — How to Grow 
Them and How to Use Them" by Mrs. Helen Noyes Webster, 
"Begonias and How to Grow Them" by Mrs. Bessie W. Buxton, 
"Rock Gardens" by Cleveland Morgan and "House Plants" 
by Professor Clark L. Thayer, were reprinted. There has been 
a surprising demand for the herb bulletin and some 3,000 
copies have now been distributed. No new bulletins were issued 
last year. 

The acoustics of the Lecture Hall have been greatly im- 
proved and lectures can now be held there with reasonable 
success. The first lecture of the Winter was given by William 
N. Craig, February 7, on "Lilies," Mrs. Preston Rice gave a 
lecture on February 12, her subject being "The Hardy Garden 
in Continuous Bloom," with a large attendance. Dr. Ivan H. 
Crowell lectured on March 14, his subject being, "How We 
Can Aid and Protect Our Shade Trees." 

A new plan was adopted in the course of the Winter when 
Dr. Edgar Anderson of the Arnold Arboretum was engaged to 
conduct a class in popular botany. This class was attended by 
an average of 100 persons and eight sessions were held. It 
proved to be an exceedingly successful venture and those who 
attended have asked for another course the coming year. 

Howard Coonley, Chairman. 

Report of the Committee on Exhibitions 

It seems hardly possible to your chairman that another year 
has rolled around since the time I made my 1934 report for 
the Exhibition Committee. 

Another great Spring flower show, the 1935 show, has come 
and gone, and before reviewing it I should like to make a few 
comments on the late Spring, Summer and Autumn shows of 

Last year our early June exhibition, formerly known as our 
iris show, drew an attendance of over 6,000 people. The show 
in some ways was disappointing with respect to iris exhibits, 
but it was notable for the azaleas and rhododendrons that were 


Following this show came our mid- June exhibition, which 
also drew approximately 6,000 persons. Peonies were displayed 
in lavish profusion. Quality roses were lacking, but exhibits 
of sweet peas, delphiniums and lilies were all worthy of special 
comment: Strawberries were exhibited at this show, which 
proved to be the best shown for some years. 

The two Summer shows, featuring gladioli and dahlias, each 
drew approximately 7,000 people to the doors of this hall, and 
your committee feels that the special exhibits of annuals and 
other Summer-flowering subjects helped to make these two 
shows particularly interesting ; it is greatly to be hoped that in 
the coming Summer shows of this year, members of this Society, 
who are growers of annuals in their gardens, will bring these 
flowers to our halls for the prizes that will be offered, because 
these varied displays of the more recently introduced annuals 
are exceedingly educational. It is unfortunate that many grow- 
ers of both perennials and annuals hesitate to make entries in 
advance of the opening of the shows and fail to bring their often 
exceptionally well-grown material to the competitive classes in 
our schedules. The mid-Summer exhibition was characterized 
by some fine exhibits of vegetables, and the late Summer exhibi- 
tion brought forth an exhibit of outdoor-grown melons that won 
a gold medal award. The number, quality and size of the speci- 
mens shown made this melon exhibit probably the most note- 
worthy one ever seen by the judges of this Society. 

The exhibition of the products of children's gardens com- 
pared favorably with similar exhibits in years past, and the 
fruit and vegetable exhibition, held in early October, drew an 
attendance of almost 8,000 persons to this three-day show, 
which proved to be a great success. 

The final show of the 1934 year, scheduled as the Autumn 
flower show, was both beautifully planned and executed, the 
feature exhibit at the end of the large hall being staged by the 
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. At the end of the year the 
Albert C. Burrage gold vase was awarded to this modernistic 
chrysanthemum exhibit as the most outstanding exhibit of the 
year. Unfortunately, this exhibition came too close to Election 
Day. Fifty cents admission was charged, but newspaper pub- 
licity being almost impossible to get, because of the election 
period, the attendance totaled only 13,000, which was less than 















anticipated, and the show therefore resulted in a small financial 

From then on, interest focussed on the great 1935 Spring 
flower show, which opened its doors on March 25, and which 
proved to be the most beautiful Spring flower show so far staged 
in Boston. From every point of view it was a success. Finan- 
cially, it measured up closely with the 1934 show, but it was 
larger, as the lower floor or basement was used, and the exhibits 
staged there proved to be very striking. The 1935 Spring flower 
show was the first to be laid out by a landscape architect, and 
without question the wisdom of following this policy in the 
future has been proved. The exhibits in Grand Hall, staged 
under the direction of the garden clubs, made this great audi- 
torium a unit exhibit "June in New England." 

To the garden clubs, the greatest credit is due for this splen- 
did example of coordinated effort and architectural design. 

Comparisons are odious, but the Boston Spring flower show 
of 1935 received most flattering comparative comment from 
many visitors to the New York show the week before. Our 
Spring flower shows have become a vital part of our Society's 
life. They have become really huge affairs, straining the facili- 
ties of Mechanics Building to the, limit, and calling for a year- 
around show organization, and a financial outlay of large 
proportions before the doors are opened. They must continue 
to be better each year, always educational, and invariably 

For the safety of our flower shows of the future, our show 
management organization must be capable, courageous and 
resourceful and ever awake to the trend of the times. Plans 
for the big Spring flower shows should look forward, not 
merely one year, but two, and possibly three. 

Your committee at this time wishes to express its apprecia- 
tion of the work that Mr. Farrington, the secretary of this 
Society, did in connection with the advertising of the Spring 
flower show. At the same time it wishes to express its admira- 
tion for our show manager, Mr. Arno H. Nehrling, and to 
thank him for his untiring efforts in bringing the Spring show 
and the other shows of the year to their successful conclusions. 

To our president, Mr. Webster, we again turn, as a com- 
mittee, to thank him for all the time and thought that he so 
willingly put into our problems. 


And now as chairman of the Exhibition Committee, I would 
like to again offer my personal thanks to the individual mem- 
bers for their efforts throughout the past year in connection 
with all of the shows. 

Harold S. Ross, Chairman. 

Report of the Committee on Prizes 

With the ever-increasing scope of horticultural shows, not 
only in variety and excellence of exhibits, but also in educa- 
tional value, the demands put upon judges become more and 
more exacting and important. 

Competent judges of knowledge and ability do much with 
their criticism to raise the standards of exhibits, but human 
nature being what it is, it seems difficult to give satisfaction to 
every one. Situations are bound to develop which present 
difficulties to prize committees, but this committee is trying 
to improve conditions with constructive methods. For example, 
they have this year made a card catalogue with the names of 
people who might be available and whose talent for judging 
are known to the committee. These names have been divided 
into three groups, one for those who have had professional 
experience in design and history of art, another for experts in 
plant culture, such as professional gardeners and nurserymen, 
and the third for those qualified to judge from the aesthetic 

For some time there has been in the Rule Book a suggestion 
that the report of the judges be made public. At the Spring 
show we tried this in a limited way and placed on exhibits that 
scored particularly well, having received permission of the 
exhibitors, the scoring and comments of the judges. This was 
favorably received and we hope to extend this practice by 
having the names of the judges appear with their comments 
and scoring. 

A revision of our scale of points is also to be worked out as 
judges found under our present headings no mention of color 
or charm, both decidedly important factors in horticultural 
arrangements. We hope also to revise our scales of points so 
that they will be more nearly identical with those of other large 
societies and thus facilitate the understanding of both ex- 
hibitors and judges. There is need too for a better definition

of a rock garden, also a clear understanding of what is a 
foundation planting and we are constantly asked and must be 
ready to answer "What is the Society's definition of a garden ?" 

We have found, especially at our large Spring show, that 
the judges are hurried and so must have more quiet time for 
their work. We therefore advise that the doors should not be 
opened to the public before 5 o'clock. This would give four hours 
in which the judges might work. 

We take pride in the representative gathering of judges who 
performed their work so expertly and we are deeply grateful 
for their interest and valuable assistance. 

William Ellery, Chadrman. 

Report of the Committee on the Exhibition of the 
Products of Children's Gardens 

On entering the exhibition of the products of children's 
gardens in Horticultural Hall, Boston, on August 30, I stood 
at the door for a few moments to enjoy the beauty of its 
Autumn or late Summer coloring in the well ordered display 
of red tomatoes and zinnias with golden squash and marigolds, 
and I thought of the confusion and clutter I used to see at 
these exhibitions. The small hall where many of the cut flowers 
were shown held a large and well labeled display of wild 

The flowers seemed to be all well arranged so as to keep 
fresh during the two days of the exhibition. The lecture hall 
was filled by exhibits made by the members of the 4-H Club — 
the four H's standing for head, hand, heart and health, and I 
should say all including happiness. At one- end of this hall 
was the front of a gray Cape Cod cottage with a grapevine 
growing to its roof and a garden in front in which phlox, 
petunias, marigolds and alyssum were growing. This cottage 
was put up by Merrick Price and John Hall, whose work we 
shall be interested to follow. Also in this hall on the long, 
central table were books of pressed wild flowers well mounted 
and labeled, also of pressed weeds, that the gardener might 
become familiar with them. There were two cases of well- 
mounted insects, that the small enemies which attack the crops 
might be studied. 


Sometimes I have felt that our young Americans do not 
possess the love of gardening which the Italian and Chinese 
children have, but if the exhibition shown this August in 
Horticultural Hall is any criterion of the future work of these 
boys and girls we need not despair for our American gardens, 
although we sigh at times for the great men who have left us.
